According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork, the Philadelphia Phillies have declined their team option on J.C. Romero, and are now in the hunt for a left-handed reliever. The Philadelphia Inquirer (as per Rubin) is speculating that the Phillies may now have strong interest in Hisanori Takahashi who was released by the Mets after they were unable to work out a new contract with him. Takahashi, 35, is reportedly seeking a three-year deal worth about $15MM after a successful rookie [...]
As you all know by now, the Mets have released Hisanori Takahashi as per the special terms of the 1-year deal he signed last offseason. Takahashi is now a free agent, and at midnight tonight, he will be joined by fellow southpaw Pedro Feliciano. Takahashi, 35, was said to be looking for a 3-year deal worth $15 million dollars. What lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano will be looking for has yet to be determined, but some reports having him [...]
Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano is has officially been classified as a Type B free agent. What that means to the Mets is that Feliciano just picked up a whole lotta leverage this offseason. If he had been classified as a Type A free agent, as many thought he would, Feliciano would have had a hard time getting a deal from another team this offseason because most teams would have been reluctant to part with their first round [...]
One of the first decisions the new Mets GM will have to make, is to decide whether he will simply let lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano walk and become a free agent, sign him to a multi year deal, or offer him arbitration. “Perpetual Pedro” is quite possibly one of the most reliable and durable relievers in the game today. In fact, there’s no other reliever that comes even close to equaling him in terms of volume of work. The [...]
In Wednesday’s 3-2 Mets win over the Nationals, Hisanori Takahashi worked the ninth inning for his fifth save in as many tries. We now know enough about Takahashi to understand that he is best suited to be a reliever as opposed to a starting pitcher. The problem is that Takahashi still prefers to start despite evidence that proves he becomes increasingly ineffective the second time against a batting order and a complete disaster if they [...]
Another wasted pitching performance, this time by Jonathon Niese and the explosion of the Mets bullpen accounted for the most recent loss, 7-5 to the Phillies in the opening game of the series Game Notes Jonathon Niese was wildly effective today, giving up one run on four hits in seven innings, walking five but striking out seven. Niese got himself into big trouble early in the game, but in the later innings pitched with a [...]
After a great pitching outing from R.A. Dickey, Jeff Francoeur hit a tie-breaking home-run in the ninth inning and the Mets broke a two game losing streak to win the game 3-2. Game Notes R.A. Dickey went out today, and was wildly effective. Dickey gave up two runs on five hits with four walks, two strikeouts and he hit a batter. Dickey probably would’ve pitched more if he wasn’t lifted for a pinch hitter in [...]
After coming back from a 7-3 deficit in the 8th inning, the Mets bullpen, specifically Pedro Feliciano gave up the winning run and the Mets lost in dramatic fashion in 13 innings, 8-7. Game Notes Johan Santana started the game today like nothing that has been seen recently from him – hittable and giving up runs. Johan gave up six runs on eight hits, including a two run home run to Matt Holliday. Johan found [...]
Mets lose game four of the series against the Dodgers, 1-0. This is the fourth time the Mets have been shutout in just the eleven game road series. Mets bats continue to be absent in Dickey’s great start, as the Mets have been scoreless for the past sixteen innings. With the loss the Mets are now only one game over .500 on the season. Game Summary R.A. Dickey dominated today in his start against the [...]
